Enterprise Risk Management Training & Facilitation

Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.
     - Warren Buffett

Delta Partners defines Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) as:

  1. A risk-based approach to managing an enterprise or organization.
  2. An integration of strategic planning, process management, and internal control.
  3. A strategy for managed risk response.
  4. A prerequisite for effective preventative actions.
  5. A systematic process for risk identification, prioritization and mitigation.

Our training employs a variety of tools and client-specific case studies to ensure that your team actually acquires the skills that they need to implement ERM.

Our facilitation ensures that the application of ERM has a measureable impact on the bottom line.
